    I'm a sucker for a new guitar, but I can only justify so many semi-hollows. Don't tempt me! :D

    Now, if they were selling 5422s at that price, the deal would already be done.

    Christmas Day 2018 I ordered my Hot Rod from them (super deal). Paid extra for two day shipping, which ended up not happening. There was an attempted delivery 4 days later (Saturday) but I was gone (signature required which I didn't know) so... got it the following Wed or Thurs I think, picking it up at the shipper.

    Glitches in shipping (for which I was compensated) aside, the guitar was perfect, flawless and spectacular. It still is!

    Congrats on your new guitar, in my book Adorama rocks. I would suggest calling about the price adjustment though, and keep an eye on tracking the shipment, does seem excessive.

    Thanks everyone. Still wondering why the tracking # with USPS says "pre-shipment". They didn't ship UPS. I ordered online, and when I put in my delivery address, I was charged for shipping. I called them on Sunday, and was told that they had to charge shipping since it was to a PO box. Nothing about that restriction online, and our PO does not deliver to our house. We have to go to the PO to pick up all our mail. They have refunded the shipping to my PP account (not there yet). Still waiting on the Orange G5622T...
    Now I want a full hollow single cutaway :eek::D

    The GretschGuitars.com site says the recommended accessories are: Gig Bag 0996458000 / Case 0996408000. Adorama often has good prices on those; I got a Gretsch gig bag for my Electromatic Jet for $34.

    Another question, is there a direct replacement set of locking tuners for this that would not require any drilling, or adding extra holes?

    Congrats! Finally got notification that it's in the system, and is on the way from Charleston. Should have it on Monday...fingers crossed.
